I've just noticed the both the ads in this pic I did - some of my first - Oops is one of my all time faves - mainly because I had to colour each pixel by hand (I didn't have GIMP at the time)

Glad to see them being used again for something else

LMAO - I might just have to try this out - Oops: "Perfect Deliveries, no Mistakes" :lol: . There's no limit to how helpful the double 'O' in Oolite is in making funnies. One of my most favorite uses was marcusrg with Riedpooza :lol: :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

There's some very impressive and atmospheric ads there. It an amazing joint effort to create such a collection. I hope it's ok for me to use them like this.

Oh yes, there was a brief resistance to the "Oo" gags, which I confess I think I started (OO-Haul, Accoorist, Oops, Tescoo amongst the very first) but they're just sooooo useful!

Writing the 19 console messages in rapid succession is failing, and causing the screen to be garbled.

Thanks a lot for the report, it must be dependant of the computer's power as I have had no problems. I'll try to optimize it and if that does not help, I'll utilize the comms log.

Format the whole message text in a variable first, then write the lot with one console message. Then a second console message, blank, to stop the text to speech trying to read out the lot. You shouldn't need more than two console messages. Have a look at refreshCostDisplay() in Trading Assistant to see how I did it.

Re: [Release] marketObserver 1.4

Post by spara »

New version (1.4) is up. I took Wildebloods advice and reduced messages to two, hopefully that helps with screen going to grabble. I also shortened the update cycle for one second, hopefully that helps with blinking. Now it also works with voice messages and as an added bonus, the profit message is spoken.

Keep reporting, if you are still problems.

Thanks to all who have tested and reported this.

Re: [Release] marketObserver 1.5

Post by spara »

New version is up (1.5). Mainly dealing with issues reported here: http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13563.

* Bugfix, ad counter went one too high :oops:, producing an adless screen.
* Hud restore fix, if for some reason hud is not restored correctly. (Reported by Solonar, could not reproduce myself, hopefully this fixes it)
* Commodity Markets compatibility lightweighted. Previous solution was a bit on the heavy side :D. (Wondered by Wildeblood)
* Timer handling moved to helper functions and added existence checks. (Reported by Wildeblood)

Thanks for reporting and correcting, much appreciated.

@Solonar: If that hud problem still haunts you, please report and I'll check it again.

Does this mean that marketObserver and AI Trading Assistant are compatible with each other now?

I have not tried it, but Wildeblood released a marketObserver compatibilty plugin for AI Trading Assistant. Check it here: http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f= ... 1&start=90.

He has, but writes "Set Autotrade mode to off or advice only" about his own plugin - and the reason I prefer the AI TA is specifically its really cool autotrade function.
